Andaman and Nicobar Islands/A Breath Taking Experience
Taking a luxury yacht charter around the 500 pristine islands, islets and reefs of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands is a breath-taking experience catering to dive enthusiasts and nature lovers alike. Sitting just over 400 nautical miles off of the coast of Phuket in the Andaman Sea this archipelago sitting in the Bay of Bengal largely belong to the Andaman and Nicobar Union Territory of India with a few belonging to Myanmar.
The islands offer some fantastic vistas of lush green vegetation with flocks of parrots, Bahminy kites, hornbills, sea eagles and herons gracing its shores. Beautiful flora and fauna also bless the islands so expect to see yellow hibiscus, white lily and many variety of orchids too. Larger mammals include elephant and deer.
Under the water, divers are treated with reef fish, mantas, grey reef and silvertip sharks too. The diving is unrivaled here due to the prohibition on commercial fishing so life under the water is truly dazzling. For superyachts, this archipelago offers picture perfect white sand beaches, emerald waters and jungle interiors – for those who want to get away from it all then ask the captain to drop anchor while you swim or just enjoy a day on the beach.
Only a handful of the islands are open to tourists so admiring from afar may be the best option. This is a relatively new superyacht charter destination due to a change of visa requirement. The Indian Government introduced a new E-Visa* available on arrival in nine different airports in a bid to seduce more tourists to its island destinations. The Visa’s will be available on arrival into Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Thiruvanathapuram, Kochi and Goa. *Check your country is eligible for the visa Destinations Adaman Islands/Nicobar Islands.
